My best guy friend has this awful girlfriend. She is always
so fake, so she backstabs people all the time. I know they aren't meant to be
together. The last time I tried to explain to him that she wasn't herself
around him, he got really mad and he wouldn't listen. I don't want to hurt
anyone, so what should I do?
Isn’t it the worst when your friend is dating someone and
everyone can see how wrong they are for each other…except for your friend? Unfortunately,
this is one of those ‘sitches where ya gotta hold your tongue—even if it’s
killing you not to tell him the truth. You don’t have to pretend to be this
girl’s BFF, but you do have to be friendly and play nice for the sake of your
friendship. Even though you mean well, telling a guy all of his girlfriend’s
faults can come off as gossipy and catty, and those are two qualities you don’t
want people to think you have!
For now, keep
your opinions to yourself. The chances that your friend and his GF will end up
together in the long run are pretty slim, and he’ll learn sooner or later about
her nasty other personality. If you really need to vent about her, pick a
friend who feels the same way you do about her and give yourself 5 minutes to really
complain about it—then swear off of talking about it again. You can’t choose
who your friend dates, but you can choose to accept his decision or let it come
between you and hurt your friendship.
